Bonifacio has been told to be prepared for a trade, though the team hasn't agreed to a specific deal yet, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He has hit .279/.318/.373 with two home runs, 18 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 276 at-bats and offers positional versatility in the infield and outfield.
A stiff back that forced
Suarez, who has just five hits in his last 25 at-bats, owns a decent stat line of .260/.347/.394.
The team endured a 16-inning game Tuesday, so bringing up a bullpen reinforcement makes sense. They have yet to announce a corresponding move, but they may be able to clear a space if they trade Emilio Bonifacio before gametime Wednesday. Rusin has given up six runs in 8 2/3 innings over two games with the Cubs.
The team went through a 16-inning game Tuesday night, so extra help in the bullpen was needed for Wednesday's game. Adames went 0 for 3 in his debut Tuesday before being sent back down. Scahill has given up four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings over three appearances with the Rockies.
Embattled and injured
"Felt good," he told MASNsports.com. "I was able to get on the mound without thinking about my ankle. I was able to cover first base and third base, so I was able to do everything I was supposed to do. Got my pitch count all the way to 70-something pitches. The main thing was to see how the ankle would respond.
"It feels good. No complaints. Don't feel anything. Every time you hurt a part of your body it's not going to be like it was before right away. But I feel good to pitch."
Jimenez was a mess with the Orioles before going down. He managed just three quality starts in his last 10 outings for Baltimore as his record lowered to 3-8 and ERA rose to 4.52.
Rutledge missed Monday and Tuesday due to an illness, and it seems like he's getting better, as the team optioned a reserve infielder Wednesday. He has hit .307/.358/.486 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 140 at-bats.
Stubbs hadn't played since Saturday due to an ankle injury, but he came into the team's marathon game Tuesday and went 0 for 1 with a walk. He has hit .300/.340/.514 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 243 at-bats.
Grossman also walked twice in the rout to improve his on-base percentage to .313, which is strong when considering he owns a .195 batting average. He has 29 walks in 170 at-bats this season.
The two-run blast in the fifth inning was merely the cherry on top of an 8-1 victory. Singleton has just five hits in his last 44 at-bats.
Wilson will likely be activated from the disabled list Saturday to start against the Rays. He has been out since July 9 while recovering from an ankle injury, though he did strike out seven while giving up two runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's rehab start.
